that it is the level of our religious commit-

The Christmas Fund
For The VETERANS Of THE CROSS And The EMERGENCY FUND
AND WALK HUMBLY
Christmas is an especilly appropriate
time for us in the United Church of Christ
to remember those in our church family
who have served us long and well —
retired ministers and their spouses.
One way we can remember those who
have given us years of leadership is
through the Christmas Fund of the UCC
Pension Boards. In addition to providing
such Christmas remembrances, the Fund
also helps our ministers — active or
retired — who face unexpected needs or
This year's theme for the Christmas
Fund is "Do justly, love mercy, and walk
humbly with God," from the Book of
Micah. These words from the Old Testa-
ment prophet have been the charter of our
actions and service of God's servants over
Special Christmas Fund brochures and
offering envelopes have been forwarded to
each church. Please plan to give generous-
The Christmas Fund provides an oppor-
tunity to say "thank you" to retired
pastors and their spouses for their many
years of devoted service to the church and
the people it represents.
In March, 1981, several religious lead-
ers, including clergy from our United
Church of Christ, testified before a U.S.
Congressional Subcommittee. They testi-
fied to the continued need for nutritional
programs at a time when proposed govern-
ment budget cuts threatened to curtail
many such programs.
The members of the subcommittee gave
serious attention to the testimony of the
church leaders, but then pointed out that
budget cuts should be expected. Not only
that, but to the amazement of some of the
leaders themselves, one legislator on the
subcommittee said, "The burden of contin-
uing to feed the hungry lies on the
shoulders of the members of the nation's
This astonishing conclusion illustrates
well the challenge that rests upon the
church to more vigorously support ecu-
menical efforts to empower the hungry, to
pursue systemic and legislative approach-
es to the issue of hunger, and to assist a
variety of hunger-alleviating projects in
the U.S. today.
This we can do by our contributions to
the UCC Hunger Action Fund, as well as by
our direction action in local communities.

The Final Word
"I refuse to accept the cynical notion
that nation after nation must spiral down a
militaristic stairway into the hell of a
nuclear destruction. I believe the unarmed
truth and unconditional love will have the
final word in reality."
— Martin Luther King
REV. WARREN BLANKENHORN
Around this time of year most all of our
churches involve themselves in that
process which we know as Stewardship —
the process of enlisting financial support
for the church's ministries in the coming
Toward that end I am reminded of a
story by Halford Luccock who said, "You
remember that among the Franks whole
armies were sometimes given baptism at
one stroke, and many warriors went into
the water with their right hands held high,
so that they did not get wet. Then they
could say, "This hand has never been
baptized,' and they could swing their
battle axes just as freely as ever. The
modern counterpart of that partial bap-
tism is seen in many people who have been
baptized, all except their pocket-books.
They hold these high out of the water."
Faith isn't something you just feel or
think about or talk about. Faith is contin-
ually demonstrating God's presence in our
lives by giving of ourselves and our
resources to others.
This is often easy — and convenient to
forget. Therefore, it is doubly important
that we seek to baptize those wallets in our
stewardship giving this year!

Nearly 40 clergy persons, representing
the Alabama-Tennessee Association of the
United Church of Christ and the Tennessee
Region of the Christian Church (Disciples
of Christ), gathered at Bethany Hills
Campground, White Bluff, TN on October
19-20 to explore on a local level the conver-
sations concerning possible further merg-
er between the UCC and the Christian
Church (Disciples of Christ).
Under the leadership of Dr. David
Beebe, pastor of Chattanooga Pilgrim
UCC, and Dr. Roy Stauffer of the Christian
Church, discussions were held on the
similarities and differences in understand-
ings of the nature of the church, ordination
of ministers, and celebration of baptism
During the next two years further
dialogue on the possibility of merger has
been scheduled for lay members of local
churches, throughout the Southeast Con-
ference. Representative UCC and Disci-
ples congregations have been paired and
have been requested to hold a series of
meetings utilizing a study packet entitled
"The Covenant." Reactions to the meet-
ings, which will be held throughout the
country, will be forwarded to the head-
quarters of each denomination to see if
there is sufficient "grass roots" support to
seriously warrant formal merger negotia-
Churches which are interested in provid-
ing input are invited to do so. For further

Having outgrown the space they were

in which you can do something to help

tinues, "we should decrease the amount
we eat, substitute vegetable protein for

changing eating habits, planning meals,

Begun by Swiss immigrants in 1891, the
church's first building was constructed in
1893. In 1952 the church moved to its
present location and worshipped in what
is now the parsonage until the new sanctu-
ary was completed in 1955. In 1969 a new
educational building was added when
membership passed the 200 mark.

Impact of Belief, a nationwide survey
that the insurer commissioned "to probe
for the basic beliefs and core values of a
diverse cross sampling of Americans."
The random sampling of the public and
its leaders examined these key sectors:
religion in America, involvement and
belief in the American political system;
local community, moral and political
issues; survival of the American family;
survival of the American work ethic; the
search for leaders; and implications of
what was learned.

Priscilla Chase, 80, died October 12, 1981
at the Wharton Nursing Home in Pleasant
Hill, TN. She had been a resident of the
Uplands retirement community in Plea-
sant Hill since 1969.
Born in 1901 in Rocky Hill, Connecticut,
Miss Chase, following graduation in 1923
from Middlebury College, Middlebury,
VT, was commissioned as an Extension
Worker for the Board of Home Missions of
the Congregational Churches.
Her first assignment in educational field
work was with churches in the area now
encompassed by the Southeast Confer-
ence. In particular, Miss Chase served the
Deer Lodge Church in Deer Lodge, TN as
well as a number of churches in Georgia.
Following a term as Minister of Chris-
tian Education for the Ohio Conference of
Congregational Christian Churches, Miss
Chase served as Director of the Order
Department of the Missionary Education
Movement, which during her tenure be-
came part of the National Council of
Churches in the United States, based in
New York City.
A memorial service was held for Miss
Chase at the Community Church of Plea-
sant Hill on October 29. Persons wishing to
make memorial contributions are asked to

After meeting in a theater, the congrega-
tion built a beautiful colonial building
which was dedicated in 1922. The corner-
stone of the new church building was an
old millstone from the Congregational
Brainerd Indian Mission which was form-
erly located in Chattanooga.
Under the leadership of Rev. Arnold
Slater, now Pastor Emeritus, the congre-
gation outgrew its facilities resulting in the
re-location of the church in 1959 to its
present modern structure.
With some 370 members, the church
supports a "full service" ministry, em-
ploying a full-time pastor, an office secre-
tary, organist-choir director and part-time
Christian education enabler. The church
building is used for numerous community
groups from the Mental Health Associa-
tion to the garden clubs to the Council on
Adoptable Children. Members of the
church are identified in the community as
leaders in progressive civic issues.
